New HDMI Test Services in Japan from Allion Use Tektronix Test Solutions
New Allion Service Based Upon Tektronix High Speed Serial Data Test Bench

Tektronix, Inc. a leading, worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, and Allion Japan, Inc., announced that Allion is now providing High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) test services in Japan using Tektronix test and measurement equipment. Allion Japan offers customers a variety of services, including HDMI CTS (Compliance Test Specification). The HDMI Test Solution from Allion provides the same complete HDMI tests as those provided in Authorized Test Centers (ATC). They are the first such test services provided outside of established ATCs in Japan.

HDMI is a new HDTV standard led by the home electronics industry that offers high-definition video and digital audio. Support for this standard is expanding rapidly in Japan and throughout the world. Allion Japan is the Japanese subsidiary of Allion Test Labs, a leading IT testing organization based in Taiwan. The Taiwan lab has been offering HDMI test services since spring 2006. The lab has seen increasing requests for testing from Japanese customers. Allion launched the new service in Japan in order to meet the increasing demand for HDMI certification testing services in the Japanese market. Allion has adopted the Tektronix serial data test bench, as it provides the most proven test instruments and software in the industry. More about the Tektronix solution for HDMI can be viewed at:
